Wisteria Festival in Japan

You may have seen this elsewhere. I first saw it awhile ago and then on Slate the other day. But these images are so beautiful that I just have to post a few.

I'm not sure that all of the images above are from the Wisteria Festival (or Fuji Matsuri) at the Kawachi Fuji Gardens in Kitakyushu, but please check out the original article on Slate for two images that are simply breathtaking (and which are not Creative Commons, so I can't post them here). 

Also, here's a beautiful video of the gardens. It's a bit long, but stay with it for the wisteria tunnels and (later in the video) for the gardens at night. Gorgeous!
